LYRIC FROM ‘AN ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK’, WRITTEN BY STING ABOUT QUENTIN CRISP

Mark Farrelly combines extrovert charm, effete self-possession and waspish intelligence.

DAILY TELEGRAPH

Sting wrote his classic song Englishman In New York about the late, great Quentin Crisp, who was also immortalised by John Hurt in The Naked Civil Servant. Now the acclaimed West End actor Mark Farrelly has created and performs in this new solo based on Crisp’s brilliant words, to celebrate his incredible life, biting wit and enduring legacy.
